Patient and public engagement strategy development
In June 2014, the Trust’s Board of Directors approved the Patient and Public Engagement Strategy, 2014-17 (PDF 1.86Mb). Download a summary version of the strategy (PDF 267Kb). We developed the strategy with staff, governors and local Healthwatch bodies.
What is the strategy about?
There are many ways in which we already involve patients, carers and members of the public in our work, but we know there is still more we can do to make sure the voice of patients, carers and the public are at the centre of our everyday business. We hope that our strategy will help us to achieve this.
The strategy builds on those things we do now as well as developing new ways of working too: from involving patients, carers and the public in recruitment, education and training of our workforce, to the design of services to monitoring the care we provide.
